Julie Lynn Weybright, 52, passed away peacefully Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2012, at her home in Green Hills Retirement Community, where she resided for six years and nine months.
She was born in Dayton on July 14, 1960, to James and Nancy Ellis Weybright. Julie was preceded in death by her wonderful mother, Nancy, in December 2000.
Julie is survived by her father, James and stepmother, Beverly Ratcliff Weybright; her beloved brother, Russell, sister-in-law, Cindy, nephew, Brett (fiancee Michelle), and niece, Rebecca Grace Weybright, all of Minnesota. Julie is also survived by Bev, Amy and Chris Schenck, Ginger and Tim McLelland, Steve and Holly Poff, 11 nephews and nieces, and Bev’s mother, Mabel Ratcliff, all of Ohio.
Although Julie endured many disabilities throughout her life, her spirit was strong. She was a blessing to all who knew her. She reminded us about patience, compassion, mercy and grace. She taught us about unconditional love.
We believe that through the grace of God, she is free of pain, and whole, walking with the angels in Heaven. We rejoice that she is in a place of promise and hope.
